Refining and deflaking

Refining plays a decisive role in developing the fiber properties of stock and final paper properties like strength. It also greatly affects the paper machine’s runnability. Optimal refining can also significantly impact mill energy savings.

Deflaking - Deflaking offers a tool to eliminate process disturbances in an early process stage. By eliminating large particles from broke, deflaking contributes to a reduced number of web breaks and less screening rejects. Typically, deflaking is applied in CTMP, flash-dried bale pulping, in various coated paper and board machines as well as in tissue broke lines.
